Overview

When Ernle Bradford's Companion Guide to the Greek Islands first appeared in 1963 it was immediately hailed as the best published guide to the diverse and endlessly fascinating islands of the Aegean and Ionian seas. This revised edition of this classic travel guide profits from FRANCIS PAGAN's twenty years' of travel in Greek waters, and deep knowledge of the area. He has added further touches to Bradford's vivid accounts of the moods of the sea and the islanders' traditional ways of life, leading the reader to unexpected discoveries (hidden monasteries, hill-top villages, flowery valleys, quiet places by the sea), and writes in more depth of the Classical, Byzantine and medieval past. Included in this edition are accounts of recent archaeological work in the islands by British, American, and other European schools; he also guides the reader to sites which have become more accessible as communications multiply by sea, air and land. Photographs by George Domatas.
